Nier Replicant ver. 1.22474487139… (yes, that’s its name) is out today and, if you’re not at all familiar with the series, you might be taken aback by the praise this remake of a 10-year-old game is getting. We gave Nier Replicant a 90 in our own review, and so have other reviewers. It’s even more surprising considering the original Nier was a flawed RPG that seemed likely to die in obscurity back in 2010. Instead, it became a cult classic that now has a fantastic sequel, spin-off books, and a devoted following.

If you’re not one of those fans, the fervor for this bizarre series and its creator Yoko Taro might seem impenetrable. After learning all about Nier and its history myself, I’m here to explain why people love it so damn much.

So, what is Nier? 

Do you like games that make you question the meaning of your own existence? Then you’ll probably love Nier.
